From CNS News:
A rural Oregon man was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail and over $1,500 in fines because he had three reservoirs on his property to collect and use rainwater.
Gary Harrington of Eagle Point, Ore., says he plans to appeal his conviction in Jackson…
Liberal? I think It’s the fault of both parties.
No, it’s pretty much the Democrat’s fault.
Democrats hold all 6 of the 6 elected statewide offices.
Going into the 2006 elections, Democrats occupied all four of the state’s partisan executive offices and held a majority in the Oregon State Senate. In the 2008 elections, Democrats gained a three-fifths majority in the state house and maintained the same majority in the senate. Democrats maintained control of all state partisan executive offices. They held all four of Oregon’s five federal congressional seats, including a retiring Democrat’s seat, and unseated Oregon’s Republican senator, the only one from the West Coast and the only Republican occupying an office representing the whole of Oregon.
In 2010 the Democrats kept the Governorship and the Democratic Party of Oregon also kept all four of their previously held congressional seats in the U.S House of Representatives.
Now while the original law may have been passed before Democrats had a strangle hold on the state, it was the Democrats who gave this guy his permits then yanked them away from him, for no explainable reason, then had him locked up for the evil crime of collecting rain water on his own property.
So the Democrats have been in charge of Oregon for a few years now…as evidenced by how screwed up the state has become.
